Holidays, Parties, Family and Summer Fun

We have been incredibly busy over the past few weeks and I seriously cannot believe June is over! As I was looking through pictures for a post about 4th of July, I realized I hadn't even posted pictures from the last holiday - Memorial Day. Whew! I've got to get back on track so here are lots of pictures to catch you up!

Annual Memorial Day Fly-In at Haas Airport
 Elliott loved the "fly panes"
 These two are such good buddies

 We had a party to celebrate our favorite state champion, Daniel.
Elliott insisted on playing with the big kids at the party. I love how he wants to be just like his daddy!
 I had a busy week in the middle of June when I, along with a friend, was in charge of a fundraiser dinner for church. We shopped for, prepared and served almost 300 servings of baked ziti, salad, rolls and desserts to hungry bicycle riders participating in the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure. It was a lot of fun and our profit will help Connection (our church) fund some fun community outreach activities.

After that was out of the way we welcomed Yaya, Aunt Cindy and Aunt Jennifer for a fun visit.
 The boys loved all the extra attention and I loved having extra hands around the house!
 While they were here we took a trip to Serpent Mound. It was really neat, in spite of the incredible heat.
 We also spent some time swimming and showing them around. Here's Malachi at the waterfalls after which our road is named. We are so glad they were able to come to Ohio and spend time with us - we're already hoping a return visit will happen soon!
In the midst of our hectic schedule, our littlest guy turned 9 months old. He's still very picky about food and doesn't sleep very well, but he's a very happy boy. He's scooting/crawling everywhere, pulling up and jabbering away (da-da and ma-ma mostly) these days.
 We also celebrated a very special little lady's birthday - Adeline is 3!
I think that mostly sums up the past month. Now on to promises to be just as busy and just as fun!
